, R. 1949). TB. Early midseason bloom. Color Class B7M. 'Snow Flurry'
Note: Also listed in TB web: 'Flurry Mohr'
| From Tell's Iris gardens catalog, 1951: FLURRY MOHR TB (C. Rees '50). M. (Snow Flurry x Capitola.) Extremely large violet-purple. Standards a bit weak for such huge flowers. We discovered this makes a wonderful singleflower arrangement, or an ideal one to use for flat-dish work if the standards are bent down under the falls. If you cannot grow the Japanese Iris this is for you. It is breathtaking either in the garden or in arrangements if made into a "flat" iris. Your friends will be amazed. $3.50. Varieties marked with "*" are descended from Regelia or Oncocyculs iris.

AIS Color Class: B7M (medium blue self with red undertones). '76 CL: Deep violet self. Tell: "Extremely large violet-purple." 1950. Notes: registered as a TB but qualifies as an OB- in both systems.
